This Week's Announcements

Greetings from St. Michael's

Meditating For Success 

     You will find 'Meditating For Success' on our website under the 'Ministry' heading. The weekly Scripture verse will be posted there along with previous weeks. Memorization is really a preparation for meditation. As we meditate on Scripture, before going to sleep at night, we get the benefits and insights from the Word that God wants us to have. Our brain will work on it while we are sleeping. And in the morning, meditate before getting up. This powerful instruction from the Lord brings great spiritual results in our lives.
This week’s Scripture is from:

Hebrews 10:23  
“ Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful.” 

Bible Translation: English Standard Version (ESV)
